Last: Skeletal Remains - Camden. Possibly my favorite gig of the year. Such a fun crowd. Supports of blasphemer and zealot cult were great too. Only downside is skeletal remains only played for 40 minutes which is really poor for a headliner. So good job I liked the supports.

Next: Voyager. Can't wait for that. They are a fun band.
I see the bad moon arising.

Last gig - Bloodstock. Left my view on the festival in the good/bad/ugly thread - had a great weekend as usual (despite the weather), saw some quality performances but the highlights were definitely Powerwolf, Sabaton, Anthrax & Dee Snider. Really don't want to break my 10-year continuous attendance (also went in 05 & 06 in addition to 4 indoor fests) but the announcement for next year really hasn't convinced me yet and the quality is gonna need to greatly improve before I buy a ticket.

Next gig - Prophets of Rage - Manchester

Last - Prophets of Rage in Manchester. Normally wouldn't do a gig this close to Bloodstock and especially one which involves a mid-week trip to Manchester but I missed them when they did festivals a couple of years ago and I've been wanting to see them ever since. Put on a great show and there was a really good lively atmosphere in the crowd - so many RATM, Cypress Hill and Public Enemy classics made for a really fun show.
Overheard some of the security being puzzled as to why everyone suddenly turned up to the venue just before Prophets came on - easy answer mate, it wasn't hard to find the stage times and a when you book a support band nobody has heard of (and 30 secs on Youtube was all you needed to discover how shite they are), then it's hardly a surprise people don't want to stand up for 2 extra hours drinking over-priced cans of Red Stripe.

Next gig - HRH Sleaze @ Sheffield Academy

Last - Bloodstock (won't got into it here, that's what the 2019 forum is for, but had a blast despite the weather).

Next - Hardwick Live this weekend, only going for the Saturday this year. Mainly looking forward to Manic Street Preachers, Stiff Little Fingers and The Joy Formidable.

Brutal Assault. Talked about in on the Gigs subsection.

Next might be Bong at the Black Heart on the 25th, if can afford a trip to London before payday, then definitely going to see Abduction at the Dev on 5th September.
